I think I’m gonna lease. With the electrical issues reported here and the door hinge corrosion issues affecting JL’s in general, I would like to have an out if needed.
I just did the same, and for the same reasons.

I brought home today a new 3-year leased Sahara Unlimited 4XE in Granite color.

It made it home with no issues! :)

The family loves it. As do I!

Thanks for all the input, everyone.

@Tonyb the final negotiated price was $51,9XX. In that particular calculator you're using, you would put the $7,500 in the down payment section. But it's a taxed incentive so keep in mind it's not the full $7,500. Value at the end of the lease is $37,821. Sales tax is 8.3%.

I buy as I want to modify it. If you lease, you need to remove all the mods when you return.. Also, in case there are any issue as reported here, I will just sell/trade it instead of waiting for the lease to end.

Here's roughly your deal in a better calculator which shows your $350 lease payment. Nice research and negotiation work!

Yes, that is possible. Just do not want have any hassels with buyout especially with a bank lease... Overall the interest charges in a lease is still higher than finance, the interst base in lease is higher as well (cap+residual).

You don't have to wait for lease end to get out.

As a first time Jeep owner and since this is Gen 1 of the 4xE, the primary reason I leased is if these Gen 1s turn out to be very problematic (hopefully not!), then I would expect selling one I own could be a harder task - who will pay top dollar (or a decent dollar) for a known-glitchy, problematic car? A lease is finite. If the car is a problem, I can walk away. So for this “peace-of-mind”, I will pay arguably slightly more.

But glass half-full: Assuming it’s a fantastic Jeep with no new/major issues, my grand plan is to trade in the lease on the Sahara for a spec’d out Rubicon in about 2 years!

Yes it is on a 3 year lease.
If it's a taxed incentive you're not getting the whole $7,500 right? Say you're paying $500 in taxes on the $7,500, you're only really saving $7,000 in the end.

I am leasing mine (12k x 36) so I can turn the keys at the end of the 3rd year. I will keep it if the market value is higher than the residual at that time. If the 2024 is better than this one, I may get one.

For now, I am enjoying my 4xe, no issues so far. 320 miles on electric out of 498. Not even one tank of gas per month, perfect for my driving needs.

This is my logic. The 1st gen + known hinge corrosion issue with JL’s have me a bit nervous.

Leased mine. Found out about the deal on the Leasehacker forum.

The $7.5k credit off the the cap cost makes it a real cheap lease on 53k Jeep.

Not sure I would want to own this tech until its really proven. Lots of moving parts and tech.

Heard the 4xe is the hottest selling wrangler yet.
I did the lease with the credit and also the tread lightly credit for being an affiliiate so I ended up saving like 11,300.00 the residual to purchase the jeep after lease end is ridiculously low... and yes the lease payments are very affordable. I truly love the jeep! I have pulled my 3000 lb camper, been off roading and I drive 30 miles per day to work highway so I find it so comfortable compared to previous wranglers. And I just have to say ITS FAST AS HECK! WOW....
